Geneva according to… Christophe Durand

This is our very first interview on Dear Geneva and we are excited!

Our hope and plan is to give you an insiders guide, a locals opinion and some top secret haunts from those in the know. We at Dear Geneva already know how fabulous this city is, but there is nothing better then some top tips from a local (or someone who has been here a little longer then us).

Interview with Christophe Durand – Founder and Director of the wonderful Le Bal des Créateurs  (check out our previous post, here).

How long have you been in Geneva?
17 years but work and travel took me to other places for 10 years, but I returned in January of 2011.

What do you like best about living in Geneva?
I like being in a small city that has big possibilities and charisma, with large head quarters surrounded by nature. I am inspired by nature.

Where do you like to…
ShopOu Bien, Les Enfant Terrible, Angelic’Art, Les Petit Fripeuse, L’Adresse
Eat/Drink – La Sixième Heure, Café Metropole, L’Aiglon, Le Phare, Yvette de Marseille

What is one thing only a local would know?
The view from the Saléve and that Bain de Paquis is open in the winter, you can relax by the fire place and eat fondue sitting with friends around the wooden tables all whilst it is snowing outside.  You can take a sauna and swim in the lake.

Dear Geneva would like to thank Christophe and his amazing team at Le Bal des Créateurs for their time.
